Well, try the latest versions in various CVS-branches, if they don't work,
try to fix them, if you cannot, report your problems on the list. If even
then problems don't get solved try going back version-by-version, until
you come to a working version (but not beyond 24.1.11:-)). It is really
better to try to use / fix the current version, than use an older one,
even if it is known to work stably, and the latest versions are not (so
well) tested on your platform.
